Abstract

Inter-disciplinary researchers from Law & Psychology convened a local ‘I Heart Consent’ week of action to raise awareness. 171 students participated in a survey which focused on their understanding of consent-related issues, reporting preferences, knowledge of support services, & attitudes around sexual activity when alcohol is involved. Sexual violence is prevalent within HE, but many do not know where to seek advice, with many more likely to approach a trusted tutor, than friends, parents or external support services. Students witnessed these incidences occurring, but often did not report them. Reasons included stigmatisation, safety concerns, not being believed & because sexual violence is seen as a normal part of student life. Participants had strongest attitudes about statements related to sexual assault & alcohol, but were less clear about the legality of intoxication & rape.
